the edges. we should actually fix it so we don't have this big problem which everybody knows is coming. the virtual consensus among economists is that we will have a debt crisis comparable to what greases having today. we want to do something bold that fixes the country and this is that rare opportunity. >> what about the $4 trillion plan that lawmakers have been talking about this week? it does not sound like that would satisfy the criteria? >> we don't know what the $4 trillion is. we hear about that over so many years. we don't know any of the details. that may be part of the cuts and the cap as we go forward. we think you have to look at this away a normal american family would look at this. cuts in the short term and cuts to make sure we are doing a dump and on this problem and the cap means we go forward and don't exacerbate the problem in coming years and then the real fundamental process requiring the federal government to do what every family has to do and every business has to do, have a balanced budget. we think that makes the most sense. >> does that have to be part of this

. >> third, i think they are agreed on budget cuts but not which cuts. i think they are agreed now that big deal is dead so they will try to go for some small deal. i guess they're there but it's clear mitch mcconnell is concerned that the republicans in the house can't get anything through. >> well, then i don't think they're dead. your hopes of them all agreeing on the three things you named as you said, you don't know if it can get through the house. a house divided cannot stand for america, pat. richard, what is your reading? ? the republicans can't get it together and the people who may pay for this is the american public? >> before we get there reverend, i want to pick up on something pat said. if there were any kind of tax increase at all republicans would be finished. let's look at the polls. recent gallup polls suggest that only one in five american voters think that this deficit crisis needs to be dealt with, with spending cuts alone. in other words, the vast majority of voters want to see a mix. now you can debate where the mix should be between spending and revenues, between cut
this big, grand compromise, the president and and congressional leaders need to negotiate to raise that limit. they're e manding 2 trillion in spending cuts be made to give the president the increase he wants and democrats demanding any deal to cut spending like that has to include an increase in tax revenue. the big question, going into tonight's meeting is whether a smaller deficit reduction n dea is possible. both sides are saying it can be done. failure to do it would lead to economic meltdown. >> jon, thank you very much. joining me to discuss the road ahead is the white house chief of staff bill daley. thank you very much for joining us. you've heard what jon said. you've seen what speaker boehner has done last night. what's your reaction to the deal being pulled right now? >> it's very unfortunate the speaker made the comments he has. the president is committtt to solving this deficit possible for the future of america. he's looking forward to the meeting to play out his case. he's saying, it is time now to make the tough decisions. in this town, generally they kick the can.
ever gets to the point where he's really going to cut the big three. i do give the president a great deal of credit for fighting the republicans like this and standing up to them. they're a reckless party and they don't care if they have another financial meltdown in this country. this is one of the most un-american things i think i have ever seen play out by a political party. president obama is putting politics aside. it's time for the republicans to do the same. i mean, when the president says this may sink my presidency, he's willing to have that happen as long as it saves the country financially. for once, for sure, we can turn to washington and see that there is someone and it happens to be president obama who's willing to put country first at the stake of -- at the sake of possibly losing his base in a very important election cycle and it may, of course, jeopardize his re-election. he's got 77 people in the house who signed on a resolution saying no cuts to the big three and willing to go to war with them as well to save the economy. where are the republicans? for the latest o

with the big debt talk. congressional leadering returning to the table this morning, after the grand bargain broke down last saturday and a tense 75-minute meeting last night failed to move negotiations forward. at 11:00 this morning, the president will hold a news conference to press publicly for his big deal. yesterday, his top economic adviser said the u.s. is out of options. >> we make 80 million checks a month to americans, 55 million people on social security benefits, millions more americans on veterans benefits, medicare, medicaid. people who supply our troops in combat. on august 2nd, we're left with cash on hand and the cash we take in. there is no credible way to give congress more time. there's no constitutional option, there's no delay option, there's no creative financial option. they have to act by the 2nd. >> no constitutional option, 14th amendment, off the table. here's what we know, debt talks appear to be at an impasse and here's why. the president is still pushing a big deal. democrats say the fallback plan, this $2 trillion plus package that was partially negotiated in
economic soundness to this country. that take as big deal. a lot of pain. democrats are upset the president talked about pain on their side of the ail and republicans are saying no way will we give tax relief to middle income americans. they want to continue tax relief to the wealthy. everyone agrees a number around $4 trillion will make a serious debt on our deficit. it will send a statement to the world that the u.s. has gotten ahold of their fiscal problems and they are moving forward. it will give confidence to the american people that we can move forward to bring economic soundness. that's the president's commitment. >> 6:00 on the east coast. welcome to "morning joe." look at that nice live look at times square. joe is looking spify today. he went shopping. it is monday, july 11th. >> i don't know what that means. >> we have msnbc -- well, yes. this is unusual. we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, john heilemann. what's so funny? >> yeah, what's so funny? i don't get it. he's back. >> we can't get him to leave. we have "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner and in washington
>>> big casino. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, shooting the moon. president obama met today with congressional leaders to deal with the debt and he may have calmed the republican' bluff. the president is pushing a plan much bigger than before with $4 trillion. that's trillion with a t, spending cuts. major changes to medicare and to social security could be on the table as well. provided republicans agree to an increase in tax revenues. we may be watching president obama outmaneuvering his republican opponents, positioning himself as an even bigger deficit hawk than those on the right. it's a bold move, but will it work? >>> and what happens if no deal on the debt creeling is reached? is president obama's last best option to invoke the 14th amendment, to bypass congress and borrow beyond the debt limit? conservatives are usually quick to defend the constitution, but congressman tim scott of south carolina says that move might be worthy of, believe it or not, impeachment. >>> how's this for a fight? fox is going after
guys to protect the fat guys and corporate jets and big super rich. you're expendable now, crack thinkers. don't you understand? they play you against the poor and you're skpentable now. let those guys handle it. they got to protect the big guys. >> now know, that is coming from john mccain whose campaign might be compared to custard, except custer's came out better than mccain's did. in 2012 a conservative will be elected so i think that will speak for itself. his his brand was she lacks in 2007 within 2008. mine won the house of representative by record numbers in 2010. >> yeah, but now your brand of conservative is told, get your butts in line. don't get too big for yourself. because you've done your job. you're saving the corporate jet guys. you're closing in making sure to protect the loops holes. now just shut up and let us handle it, we've got movies it watch. thank you judson phillips. thank you for being here with me. >> thank you for having me. >> hosts of the bill press show on sirius radio, gentlemen, it is quite interesting, looks like mr. boehner is trying to get a
to ask big oil companies and people making over million dollar to do their fair share by increasing revenues. >> have a good fourth of july weekend and we'll see you -- >> big mets and yankees series in new york tonight. i'll be watching. >> i'm always rooting for the national league. always got to stick to it the big guys. thanks. >> thank you. >>> all right. joining me now major garrett chief congressional correspondent for the national journal. doesn't want to kick the can down the road. sounded like a guy -- all right, if that's the deal that's cut and there's a temporary deal and it sometimes right now that's what smells like what's coming. >> he would have said i will vote against that. he didn't say that. >> that's what it's important. >> he didn't say i will vote against it. that's important. it's going to have to be up to the house republican leadership to bring that to the floor to agree to a short-term resolution of this absent a huge deal. eric cantor told me this week -- >> a great column about eric cantor. if we look at it in five pots here, the white house, senate rep
. and carney saying that tomorrow is a big day and everybody has to either come to an assessment that we can do a significant deal and they were talking of course of the $4 trillion deal until the republicans pulled the plug on that last weekend, and they have to come in friday, and friday is shaping up to be something of a deadline, and meanwhile, tim geithner, the treasury secretary up on the hill behind closed doors talking about the senators of a doom and gloom scenario is nothing is done by august 2nd, and the united states has to begin to default as carney and other white house officials call it hypothetical and insists that the country will not default and some arrangement will be made, but it is not clear what the path of the arrangement may be before august 2nd, tamron. >> and what about the report that the president was mulling over a bipartisan meeting at camp david and there is a quote at nancy pelosi saying it is not a good idea many her opinion, because the rsvps have not been released as politico pointed out, but what is story here? >> well, everybody is backing away from somethi
on that in just a moment. i wish i could say there's big news about the debt ceiling talks. i can't tell you that. there's more drama than dealing going on in d.c. right now. a fifth round of talks is set for today. but yesterday didn't go so well. house republicans called for a short-term extension and house majority leader eric cantor says this is what the president said in response. quote, don't call my bluff, eric. and then he walked out a few minutes later. president obama said all along he'd veto any short-term measure. ed administration says failure to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling by august 2nd could trigger a partial default on the part of the united states. thanks to that debt ceiling issue and the possibility of default you're on notice. i'm on notice. everyone from maine to san diego is on in. moody's investor services, the debt rating agency plans to review the nation's aaa bond rating and might downgrade it from stable to negative. standard & poors has the u.s. bond rating under review. let's talk about foreclosures for a second. realty track, the company that tracks the for
14% in taxes and corporations pay 0%, and you raise more, you can have us a big deal here. >> they're still drawing lines in the sand that seem insurmountable with weeks to go before the august 2 deadline, congressional leaders are heading back to the white house today for yet another meeting to reach a deal on raising the country's debt ceiling. officials familiar with the negotiations say majority leader eric cantor dominated yesterday's meeting. cantor laid out what was agreed upon in the deficit reduction talks led by vice president biden, specifically $2 trillion in cuts in the next decade. the figure includes $1 trillion in discretionary spending. $200 billion in medicare and medicaid. and $200 billion to $300 billion on saved interest in the debt. >> so the military -- the military, i guess, comes in in the mandatory discretionary spending. >> military. >> sources familiar with the talks add that after the presentation president obama said the two sides might be able to reach consensus on roughly $1 pp 7 trillion. but there are still some issues to resolve. at one point in t
the debt ceiling only after congress passes a balanced budget amendment. congressman jordan you are big sponsor of this. president obama says that it would cut medicare and social security much more deep ply than paul ryan's budget plan. >> we like to view it as a common sense american plan. americans know we are spending too much. we are headed for a cliff. we are headed for bankruptcy. cut spending in year one and cap it as a percentage of the economy going forward. everyone understands our government is getting too big. let's do something historic. let's for the first time in american history pass a balanced budget amendment through the house and senate and send it to the states. let's make the federal government, the entity that has a $14 trillion debt, make us live under the requirement that everyone else has to live by. >> chris: what is wrong with cut, cap and balance and what are the chances it will get through the house and national and get signed by the president? >> no one should be fooled by this. they are not proposing a clean balanced budget amendment. they are proposing t
clearly we have a bought one. time to change that. our show starts right now. >>> well, the big story today, whether we like it or not, round 4. right now congressional leaders walking back into the white house for the fourth straight day of debt talks with president obama. it is hump day here in new york city, and across this great land. i am dylan ratigan. a pleasure to be seeing you. debt negotiators have yet to get over their trillion dollar hump and agree on a debt deal to keep our nation functional, the president stepping up the fearmongering, warning that seniors may not be able to get their social security check next month if congress does not act. quite simply, that would not happen. on the gop side, speaker boehner said any deal would be a crapshoot. house majority leader eric cantor, king of the prowrestlers these days, a leading voice emerging, aligning with the extremely far right idea logically prime minister study committee, in guarantees another job-killing debt crisis. that's a good talking point. i think most notably we'll stop spending on pod people or -- does
fourth of july weekend. we'll see you -- >> big mets-yankees series in new york tonight. >> i'm always rooting for the national league. you have to stick it to the big guys. congressman, thanks. >> thank you. >>> all right joining me now, chief congressional correspondent for the national journal. doesn't want to kick the can down the road. >> right. >> sounded like a guy who, if that's the deal that's cut and there's a temporary deal, right now, that's what smells like is coming. >> yes. >> he did say i will vote against that. what they say and don't say matters. he didn't say i will vote against them. it's going to have to be against the house leadership to agree to a short term resolution to this absent huge deal. >> eric cantor told me this week, there's a great column on this, a great column about eric cantor. if we look in five pots here, the white house, senate republicans, not democrats house democrats, all reluctantly support the short term deal. the one who wouldn't, house republicans. >> they don't want to vote twice. there's a number of the house majority that total 239 tha
a democratic president at the table willing to make major changes in the big three, to the tune of $4 trillion across the board, and the republicans won't take the deal. it's rather amazing. why? are they afraid that president obama might do well with independent voters? are they miscalculating the fact that the base would be furious with the president if he were to cave in on the big three? and president obama tonight in my opinion is emerging as the most honest broker maybe washington has seen in a long, long time. he openly states he's willing to put his presidency on the line to bring both sides together to get a deal, and the only way he believes that can be done is if some revenue from the wealthiest americans comes into the treasury. and the republicans won't budge. it's amazing, it really is amazing. president obama is trying to make an honest negotiations at the decade. this is what republicans have wanted for decades. they have a democratic president that's willing to do it and they walk? because of revenue? amazing. for more on tonight's meeting, sam young man. white house correspon
, but if a shrunken version of the boehner big does -- or if they go to an emergency extension, the president will be right back in the same predicament he's in right now. i think a lot of people are upset. they blame the republicans more than the democrats for the gamesmanship, but the fact is the republicans have also backed the president into a corner, even if they're doing it in a way that's not popular. >> i want you to analyze these two possibilities, one the president could give away more of the store, more spending cuts, maybe enough to get us thus this increase. which would make the redhots happy. no tax increase at all. the other possibility is to marry what boehner wants right now with what mcconned was talking about next year, where next year it can be are can be raised by the president, only the house would have to come back with a two thirds veto, so it seems there is a possibility for compromise, but the easiest thing is for the president to throw the whole bomb game, say, you win this year, not next year. >> i don't think he can do >> i don't think he can do that, chris. when
in this country, if we don't meet our bills, do we get into big trouble, or don't we? some people are holding out and saying, this isn't a problem we can slither through this thing. where are you on that? >> no. i think it is a problem. in fact, you know, we have slowly stair stepped our way into this mess and certainly the gop caucus, right on right crime perpetrated there with the different messages and you know, who's on top of who? who's the leading voice today? done nothing more than muddled the debate for a lot of the american people right now. you're seeing it begin to reflect in the polls. beginning to see it reflect amongst some of the other members of the caucus who are just sick and tired of not getting to a point of resolution. so i think that there are very serious people there beginning to step up with the party on both sides, quite frankly, to move the participants to a point where we can actually begin to get something done. i think, chris, there will be a deal done. the question is, right now, what exactly does it look like, and who's prepared to stand before the american people

with markets in a bad way. >>> and then the big tease. julie yanni w giuliani. will think of these folks get in the game? the summer of speculation. good morning, thursday, july 14, 2011, i'm chuck todd. >>> and the nbc campaign team is doing a lot of prep today. doing that behind the scenes but why not to get right to my first reads of the morning, hurdling towards the huge financial calamity. ratings agency moody's put the government on notice for a possible credit downgrade. as leaders try to broker a deal, personal relationships are breaking down. president obama and house majority leader eric cantor clashed yesterday after the president frustrated by the lack of progress, saying it was time to stop postures and get the deal done. cantor went to the press telling his version of story. cantor said, obama got very agitated seemingly and sat there long enough. and no other president, ronald reagan, wouldn't sit here and he said to me, eric, don't call my bluff. democrats dispute his version of the event. one said cantor's account of tonight's meeting is completely overblown. cantor rudely i
big push for the big cuts republicans say they want. if they turn their back on those big cuts, the president is in the strongest position to say they are not living up to their rhetoric. let alone their principles. >> and there is no chance of them accepting any kind of big deal at all because the president is insisting that there be tax revenue increases in there. so the president knows that he is pushing something that they absolutely cannot agree to. so at this point, what the president does seem to be doing is what you just said, is making his position appear to be the one who wants to do the big move on deficit reduction and forcing these republicans to back away from big deficit reduction, thereby, he hopes, neutralizing deficit reduction as an issue against him in the presidential campaign. >> well, look. he's talked about deficit reduction all the way through. but remember, it's not just his position here. it's two thirds of the american public. we have a slew of polls here saying that two thirds of the american people want to see some combination of taxes and spending

's right. you know, the big point of contention yesterday was with house majority leader eric cantor pushing for this short-term deal or a series of short-term deals. the president, according to democratic sources familiar with the talks, made it clear that that is something he does not support and something he would veto. the president has, for the last few days, and certainly weeks as well, been pushing for the biggest deal possible where it it seemed to get some support. of late, it has not. the president believing if you start talking about the short-term deals, you run into the political season where you negotiate the things all over again. if you can't get this done now, how will you get this done in the thick of the political season? tense discussions yesterday. the president agitated and believing that republicans are using the debt talks to make political points. the president making the point, according to those inside the meeting, that this kind of atmosphere just confirms some of the worst fears that americans have about the way washington works. >> well, yeah. the way wa

reform. it is quite a big undertaking considering there isn't a lot of time left but certainly some movement that we have seen since yesterday, guy. >> any specifics? i think important people who are listening to the process of what's happening in washington, what this means for people over a longer period of time is fewer services and smaller government and maybe higher taxes or higher cost of living your life as the services go away. i mean, all of these have amazing and long lasting ramifications for how we live our lives. my specifics? >> huge long -- no. honestly in terms of the specific, i mean, we can talk generally about where the cuts would come from, entitlements, defense spending, you can see how that would affect different people and the nation as a whole. specifics, no, i think we are going to be getting, obviously, more details on that to come. let's just take a look at some of the things that some of the folks who are coming here to the white house are going to demand because, remember, president obama is hosting eight members of congress, top two democrats and top tw
